11:00 am
to fade little bit. stuart: it is bling and you know it and you are out of time. connell: i love when you say bling. good for charles. the president says checks are not enough for retirees so he is rolling out something called my are a. we will talk about what it means and is this the answer that we need? the wicked weather swings into an and prepared south, people sleeping in their cars, in buses for local government that does not have the equipment to deal with a situation like that and cyberspeed, the u.s. ranks far behind the far east when it comes to how fast the internet works. tomorrow's business today using your heart be to manage the security of your house card computer. that is all coming up on markets now. ♪ dagen: good morning. connell: this is some market.
11:01 am
dagen: the fear is coming back originating in turkey about emerging markets in general that they will take a tumble and take the world with them. nicole petallides is at the stock exchange with more. nicole: absolutely right. when you talk about emerging markets we are watching turkey and other economies and watching currencies as well. i was reading headlines a short time ago about policymakers knew that emerging-market could be the wild card in a worrisome part of the market and that is what we are seeing. the dow is down 107 points, not a terrible day but a down arrow day down 1/2% and earnings of come out and we have given guidance for many of these companies that seem to be a little light, and that is weighing on the dow jones industrial average. the major average sitting on technical support levels, that is another factor and i won't leave out fit day. today is the day policymakers give their latest ideas so we
11:02 am
will see what the federal market committee comes up with and whether they could continue their capering plan. connell: the next conversation about the economy. we will begin with president obama's state of the union address last night, vowing to act without congress. lot of talk of executive orders. the president unveiled a new kind of retirement account. >> i will direct the treasury to create a new way for working americans to start their retirement savings. my ra. it is a new savings model that encourages folks to build a nest egg. my ra guarantees a decent return with no risk of losing what you put in and if this congress wants to help, work with me to fix an upside-down tax code that gives big tax breaks to help the wealthy save the double or nothing for middle-class americans.
11:03 am
connell: the former director of the white house office of management and budget under president clinton joins us from washington d.c.. i said we had a few things to talk about. let me begin where the president was talking about my ras as they're called. do you understand this and what the goal is? there has been some discussion inside the white house, wasn't clear if it was pretax or post tax or who they're trying to help. what do you make of the idea? >> i think they are trying to help people save more and it is a kind of starter savings account, a bond, a treasury bond so the principal is guaranteed, but the idea is sort of like the world war ii savings bonds, everybody took payroll deductions, the president will go out and try to get businesses to try to offer a payroll
11:04 am
deduction for saving in these accounts and the idea is to get first-time savers, workers who are not saving now, and in the low to moderate end of the income distribution, it wouldn't be available to very high earners and if they save enough over the years it would roll into a privately managed accounts and that seems to me a good idea. connell: will it have a discernible effect or a minor situation as far as you see it? a big affect? >> anything we can do to get americans, especially working americans saving more over the long run is a good thing. the baby boom generation did not save enough for retirement. we know that now.
11:05 am
they took risks, their houses lost value, many lost jobs, they didn't save enough. turning this around and encouraging younger savers to get into the habit of saving seems like a good thing. connell: let me ask about a couple of other issues that have to do with the economy and financial markets which dagen mcdowell mentioned, turkey, stock market is down in the u.s. but first federal reserve in a meeting this afternoon, tapering expected to continue, $65 billion a month in terms of this bond buying program down from 85, now 75, pablo going in the, quote, right direction at the federal reserve? >> i think we are. the economy is not roaring but it is strong enough and eventually they had to taper off and i think they're doing it the right way. at the last meeting the thing to do is start now but start small and that is what they did.
11:06 am
connell: turkey raises rates and last night if you are looking at the stock market as an indicator of futures, that is the reaction, then weighed down and people, it is a stop gap. are there bigger problems than we know about not only in turkey but other overseas markets and emerging markets? are you worried about what is happening of late? what do you think will happen next? >> not an interpreter of volatile markets and we certainly got those at the moment. i am not terribly worried. i think the u.s. economy is showing signs of strength, we just need to keep going and i am not one who thinks the apocalypse is around the corner. stuart: that is a good thing. connell: nice to see you, covered a lot of ground with this so thanks very much.
11:07 am
>> thank you. dagen: more crazy winter weather but this time it is hitting the southeast with atlanta at taking the biggest hit, the georgia national guard is helping passengers stranded overnight in school buses full of children. connell: in atlanta, fox 5 is covering the details. >> what a mess this has been ended started yesterday afternoon around one:00. we were predicting this snow that was supposed to come to the area all morning. people go ahead and cancel school. atlanta is a city in the deep south equipped to handle, don't have the proper amount of salt, salt trucks scandal these situations. when the snow began to fall it seemed everyone in the metro area reacted at the same time. we have all the school system's letting children out of school, kids out of school, everyone leaving the work place and this created a traffic gridlock situation the likes of which i have never seen in my entire
11:08 am
life. we talked to and an earlier today who left his office in downtown atlanta yesterday afternoon, he is still not home. we have stranded cars all over the interstate call over this area, people did to their cars and walked home, people spend their nights in home depot stores, kids spend the night in their high school gymnasiums, a gridlock situation and with temperatures in atlanta back in the teens it is far from over. connell: thanks, it is a real mess. dagen: i saw that pistons game with the hawks. connell: not ready for it and not used to it. dagen: people go out and get stranded. sticking with the leather, the mets, snowy and icy conditions resulting in flight cancellations, school and business closings, worst of all sheer chaos on the road. connell: we continue with fox
11:09 am
news in montgomery, alabama. >> as you can see there is plenty of ice and snow on the roads, traffic is picking up as the sun comes out but with the temperatures still below freezing it could be well into for thursday before these roads become saved drive on, local officials urging people to stay at home. dealing with a serious winter storm in the south is like dealing with a hurricane in the northeast. a type of natural disaster you simply are not used to in the region and don't have the equipment to deal with. look at this video from the i 85 i 65 interchange in montgomery where we saw a jackknifed trucks, roads and bridges are sick, city and county crews are out trying to clear them as best as they can. take a listen. >> it happened so infrequently here we don't have any deicing, we don't have salt or chemicals
11:10 am
we can put on the road so we are left to be in a situation where all we can do is send a bridges, get traction established and make it somewhat possible so that people can use them. >> take a look at these pictures out of atlanta. early tuesday rush hour turned into an overnight ordeal for many motorists although forecasters predicted the possibility of snow, local officials say they didn't realize the snow would come so far north and the storm would arrive so quickly sell most schools remained in session on tuesday, people went to work and when the snow did start falling in heavy amounts midday everyone tried to head home at the same time. even at this hour there are people stranded in their cars so if you can imagine there's a lot of finger pointing going on in the atlanta area. at news conference moments ago atlanta's mayor said the lesson learned through this is there needs to be going forward staggered release times for schools, businesses and
11:11 am
government offices in the next winter storm. i would like to show you a live remote from our photographer jeff burton, these pictures coming live from i 85 between atlanta and the alabama line in rural georgia. there is very little traffic on this highway. what traffic is there is moving slowly. when you look at the high way you can see there's plenty of ice on the road and that is why officials in georgia and alabama are telling folks if they don't absolutely have to be out of the house to stay at home. it is the safest thing to do. dagen: thank you for that. one problem is people drive suvs and think they will be ok in icy conditions on the road with other automobiles. you see it here. connell: see it all the time. dagen: people speeding in suvs, this car is harder to stop because it weighs more. connell: all the time people do
11:12 am

the same time which created a gridlock situation in atlanta. this is a town that has seen our share of traffic. we are talking about people seeking shelter wherever they can find. spending the night at home depot stores. spending the night at waffle houses. kids spending the night in the gymnasium of their school. this is a store that we will continue for another 24 hours in the area. cheryl: we want to continue our coverage and show you exactly what is happening in atlanta.
12:11 pm
many of the major airline hubs are located in the south as well as, yes, the world busiest airport. it seems to me that atlanta was not the airport prepared for this type of storm. how is that possible? we have seen a lot more worse storms in january. it is the world's busiest airport.
12:12 pm
now you have to give flight crews and flight attendants and mechanics and everybody from their homes to the airport and vice versa. you get passengers arriving in charlotte, north carolina: new orleans. once they get off the plane, where do you go if you can't get there. cheryl: this is one of those stories where i think this will end up in a quarter loss somewhere. the busiest airport in the nation unprepared. they do not have enough deicing fluid. they are not prepared for this type of storm. if this was jfk, we would not be having this conversation. the major airlines, they are dealing with thousands of cancellations. does this become a bigger story down the road for airline to have revenue issues to deal with? >> delta will make about a billion plus dollars this year. i think they can buy more than four deicer's for that airport.
12:13 pm
they still do not have the proper chemicals to get the salt, ice or snow. i think this is a learning lesson. overall, 24, 48 hours, once he gets above freezing, that airport will be back to normal. it will be moving right along. let's talk about the airline specifically. if you look at atlanta, the reason it is such a big story is you have delta, airtran both are held and based out of atlanta.
12:14 pm
even charlotte. they have u.s. air. houston is a huge hub. united airlines. that is also dealing with a massive amount of ice. it seems like this storm has hit the airlines in the most vulnerable spot that they have. >> i think that you talked about this last week. twenty-two flights canceled in the last 22 years. this year it will exceed over 40,000 flights. double the number we have had in two years. it has been -- i live in dallas-fort worth. we have the same thing happen in december. cheryl: they did not leave their home for about 48 hours.

dennis: some of the biggest names in tech giving mixed signals to investors and shares are taking hits. is in the capital iq scott kessler joins us now. is more about individual stocks and not tech on the hole. why is that? >> it is important to understand from the get go that a lot of folks, universally bullish for the technology sector. without specifying when names are what areas we think that is frankly a little dangerous. technology sector has not outperform the s&p 500 since 2009, i was reading a major publication at the end of last year, ten strategist highlighted and all of them named technology the top sector, market weighed on the sector, we see some opportunities related to economic expansion and evaluation, but the fundamentals are someone challenged related to the exposure to pcs and pricing competition and we
12:47 pm
wonder about the use of cash as well. dennis: and pocono more many, market weight. >> when you think about the technology sector as a percentage of the s&p, 18% to 19% of the s&p 500 so we don't think people should allocate t.re of their portfolios than dennis: of all the sectors head-on high, we know that tech is the industry and lost productivity for businesses and individuals, why not put more money into a tech on the bet that it will go up? >> the reason for that are multifaceted. the most obvious reason is the fact that we think others believe that the fundamentals are a lot better than the technology sector than they really are. look at the pc related areas and they are still struggling. with the areas like smart phones and tablets, lot of growth of
12:48 pm
their but a lot of pricing competition. think of software, doing so in different ways. and last but not least look at i t services, there's a tremendous amount of price patrician. what i am saying is a lot of problem pockets across the area, focusing on a bottoms up approach, look at the companies, the stocks more specifically. dennis: this from a guy at s&p makes it easy to invest in hundreds of tech stocks, s&p baskets tethered to check the overall. the fact that there is volatility in the divergent fortune makes it riskier to pick an individual tech stock. you need some courage and activists coming in and carl icahn. do you sink that could be good for tech stock values? don't know why we pay so much attention to carl icahn, he only
12:49 pm
at those 1%. the mouse that roared. >> absolutely when you think about investing in technology sector, we offer edf related research and frankly you look at a variety of ways to think about that. you can look at the? queue, the nasdaq 100, that is only 60% of technology and the x l k which is the tech sector spider but that is only 85% to 90% exposure, the vanguard product is 100% exposure so why do we focus on carl icahn? people will look at what he and others are saying as indications about things that could go on at those companies and think about what is going on and apple and the tremendous value people see could it be finally unlocked by someone of his stature? what about ebay? another company he has been getting increasingly involved in. the reason people pay attention
12:50 pm
to him is his track record and possibility to impact decisions and prices. dennis: some value will go up from here. thanks for being with us today. cheryl: gold and silver are pushing higher today as stocks remained under pressure with the dow down 132. let's head to the trading pits of the cme and phil flynn for the other side of the story which is gold and silver. phil: gold and silver are reacting to emerging-market turmoil. surprisingly turkey jumped up interest rates by four basis points and the market fell but as the turkish lira started the tank again people started to buy gold. on top of that in turkey, there was only talk about gold smuggling scandal. a lot of people at emerging-market strong gold and silver for safety. in the oil market we have the oil inventory report, we saw a much stronger demand for heating
